Chat in facebook is insecured

Facebook has 400 million users around the world.Recently facebook disabled its chat function after it was discovered that a security flaw allowed users to see their friends’ live chats and pending friend requests.


The flaw was first reported by the technology blog TechCrunch.
Blogger Steve O’Hear said he was tipped off about the glitch and was able to use the “Preview my Profile” function to see friends’ private chats and requests. His blog includes a YouTube video showing how to do it.
After O’Hear alerted Facebook to the problem, the company took down its live chat function temporarily.
In a statement sent to media, Facebook admitted the problem and said it was working on a solution.
